My wife and I stayed at the Gasparilla in following our wedding earlier in the evening. We originally chose the Pink Elephant but the manager, Tiffany, was unable to honor our reservations. We were disappointed until we met Diane, the manager at the Gasparilla Inn Main Dining Room. She and here staff took pity on our plight and proceeded to... More

I was thrilled to see that the black grouper was on the menu. Their menu changes often so, I was thrilled to see it again. Both times it was the best seafood dish I have ever had, cooked perfectly, just fantastic. My husband got a beef dish and it did not disappoint. This is a place to dress up and... More

Ate here with the family our last night on the Island. Person who took our reservation did not tell us that any male in the party over 12 years old needed pants, as my sons were in nice dress shorts. They were very accommodating though and let us borrow some pants for the boys so we didn't have to go... More

My friend and I both ordered the Cobia for dinner and the only thing that was edible was the salad. Beautiful surroundings and great service(a bit too clingy for my taste tho).

I'm not sure I've ever been to a resort dining room that measured up to smaller venues. The main dining room at the Gasparilla is no different. It is nice, very nice. The food is good, very good. It just isn't excellent. It is a wonderful experience, and I'd go again. I'd just like to see them get away from... More

The 4 of us arrived with high expectations but were so very disappointed with our dinner. My husband's filet (at $44) was poorly cooked and chewy. Two of us had fish that probably dried out while sitting under a heat lamp. We had ordered wine to have with our dinner - but it arrived as we were finishing. Terrible service... More

Elegant and bright lobby, waiting lounge and restaurant. Very attentive and courteous service. Food presentation was exceptional and the food itself was all delicious. My swordfish was the best I have ever had and my wife's scallops were similarly excellent. Don't pass up the vertically-presented Caesar salad or any of the desserts. This is as good as it gets!

Why would you ever order off the menu? The buffet is absolutely exquisite. Smoked salmon every morning, scrambled eggs with cream, maple sausage that makes you think of winter up north without the snow, and bacon done to perfection. A staff that is so attentive and yet not hovering . Your morning starts in the most perfect way with breakfast... More
